I have a very strange issue. I have a win 2k sp4 server behind a firewall that cannot ping a certain public IP address. Other servers and clients on the same network behind the same firewall can ping the address. When I do a trace route to the public ip address on the affected server, I trace down to the gateway address and then time out. On the other servers/clients on same network, I can trace route through to the next and final hop. I can browse to a webserver on that public IP address on the affected machine. Just the ping won’t work. I have deleted the route on the affetcted server using the route delete command to no avail. I have no outbound restrictive policies and the host device doesn’t either. Can anyone help with this?
